Boy, did this documentary of a dot-com startup and meltdown resurrect old memories. It’s been what, two years? Internet stock hysteria was so inflated that there are few families in America who were not touched by it in some way. Hundreds of thousands of urban workers had direct experience in this madness, but little knowledge of how the particulars worked. This fly-on-the-wall view of the birth and flameout of an Internet startup is the real thing, and should be prescribed as a catharsis if you ever owned stock in the last 5 years. Do you wonder where you pension money went? Watch this.
